in -- i want to go to don on the republican line from california. good morning. caller: canyon me? merry christmas, happy here -- happy new year. that last call shows you that the policy to win by dividing the country and making it us against them, the 47%, they are angry, they want your money, it is amazing. indeed to pass an exemption, all government trouble is not to be paid for with the tax exemption. amend the code says that anybody traveling for government purposes pays for themselves. that is obama and the $40 million worth of vacations. it is amazing. you heard the caller from georgia a comic that they are angry and they will write. you can see the country is being run by an amateur who does not know how to negotiate, he cannot write something on paper. anybody in college in 101 knows that you need to negotiate in a fair minded way. he is out to ruin the country. listen to his agenda. host: do you think compromise can be reached in the next 48 hours? caller: the answer is no. they want the retina. they are getting the money from the people -- they want the revenue. they ar

have time for another call or two. hey, don. caller: the only thing i wanted to say was more of a statement. every country we go into we have the same drug problem. i was in vietnam, it was her when. -- heroin. this country is following suit. if that's what the country wants, and it's what it gets. is this the way they win or lose a war. host: george in alabama. caller: good morning. my call is similar to the one ahead of me. if i were president for one day, i would take all our military and encamp around the drug business and let them grow all of the heroin and i would buy it and destroy it. the farmers would make their money. we would cut out the crooks and the users around the world. is wrong with that simple idea? host: final thought, douglas wissing? guest: it is a complicated world out there. we have taken some paths that are not leading us toward victory or success. the counter narcotics issues part of that. host: joining us is douglas wissing, thank you for spending time with us this morning and sharing your insight. guest: thank you. host: what we will do now is take some

floor at noon eastern time. the senate, if they need to, could come back at 2:00 p.m. eastern time. don, florida, but democratic caller. you are up first, as the senate early this morning approved the deal on the so-called fiscal cliff. caller: happy new year. i think it is a good deal the democrats got, but i am worried on the second dell as they want to put social security on the line. it does nothing to do with the deficit. our taxes paid into social security. it has nothing to do with debt. i do not know why the republicans -- the republicans have been trying to get rid of social security for 70 years now and have not gotten it done. they want to take the money and give congress a raise. they want to take people's social security money and give congress a raise and what are they doing? nothing. then they want to take money and give it to the pentagon. they put all of the money into these outfits, but they want to cut social security. host: john, ap reported this morning that officials decided to use the measure to prevent the pay raise for lawmakers. i want to let you know that, and

great place to be and live. i would have to get the name of that again. host: next up is don on the washington redskins. -- "washington journal." caller: i've been on social security for several years now. it's my understanding that the amount of money that you pay in through the payroll tax affects the amount of social security that you receive and it looks to me like people are under the illusion that this 2% is a good deal but at the same time, why they're going to be shortening themselves when they retire. is that right? guest: so that's a good question. it actually isn't really right. so the payroll tax is basically being used as a vehicle to deliver the tax cuts to workers. the way the federal budget accounting works is that the money that is not going into the social security system via the reduced payroll tax, is being reimbursed from general revenue so the reduced -- the reduced payroll tax from the last few years will not affect benefits that you accrue for the future. host: mark of the american enterprise institute writes under the headline "make the middle class pay more

electing our president. host: minnesota from don on the democratss line. ' line. caller: i watched you on fox news. -- what her father had done in the iraq war. i just find someone to sit there and let her rail about that after what her father did, i find it hard. guest: i certainly was not going to attack her for what her father did. i think you have a historical perspective that is legitimate but i think she was making an argument about what happened in benghazi and that something suspicious had taken place. i was going to treat her comments seriously and not get involved in taking shots at her dad. i think that what happened in iraq was a tragedy and has caused a tremendous amount of american lives and treasure. if you extend it to afghanistan equally a sad situation. i think most americans are war weary at this piont and feel the country has gone astray. host: would you share the sentiment of our previous best? guest: when you look at benghazi right now, i think the scandal is over. there are people who say, wait a second, when you look at who caused this attack, who is responsible
